I paid the deposit (1/2 down) to put the dress on hold so that I could use the 10% off deal they had that month.  Once I paid the rest, they officially ordered the dress.

I paid 50% and I will pay the remaider when the dress arrives!

I paid 1/2 of the total for the deposit and then the other half when the dress came in before I could get alterations done.

At my bridal store I paid 60% at the time of order. When my dress comes in, I have a set timeline to pay the remainder. Only until I pay it off do I get the dress.

Half to order it and the rest when it arrives. I am doing that and making small payments so its not all due when it gets in:)

I had to pay 100% when I ordered mine. It was during a trunk show and 20% off, but I don’t think that had anything to do with it…just their policy because so many brides change their mind.

It depends on the bridal store. My bridal salon had me pay 50% when they ordered it and then I paid the remaining 50% the first time I went to try it on

I paid 100% when I ordered the dress. It all depends on the bridal store’s policies as some allow payment options over a lump sum.

It was all paid for at once, up front.

I was lucky and bought the sample of my dress so the store just let me put down what I could afford. I just made payments whenever I wanted. I just had to have it paid off before starting alterations.

Every store I went to required 1/2 down to order it and then the rest due before alterations.

My bridal store asked for it to be paid up front but I refused and agreed to pay 50% abe the. The remainder on delivery.
